Player Goals Options
What are you character's goals? This list would take me years to complete were I to attempt to list them all.
Maybe he/she wants to avenge the death of a friend/loved one
Or perhaps discover the means to heal the illness of a friend or loved one
Does he/she perhaps have an inquenchable thirst for knowledge?
Or possibly eradicate all evil from the land
Something simpler perhaps, say amass enough wealth to retire comfortably/raise a family/build a stronghold etc.
Making new friends?
Discovering new lands/peoples/religions?
Try something new/never before experienced at least once a week?
If you have other ideas, run 'em by me. :-) I'm flexible!
